Clos Du Val – Estate Chardonnay 2017, Gran Val Vineyard – Carneros, Napa Valley

The nose is fruity. It reveals notes of lemon, fleshy/juicy pear and small notes of juicy peach associated with fine touches of mandarine blossom and a discreet hint of fresh grapefruit. The mouth is fruity, well-balanced and offers fat, suavity, a slight acidulous frame as well as tension. In the mouth this wine expresses notes of fleshy pear, fleshy peach and small notes of fleshy/ripe lemon associated with fine touches of white grapefruit as well as very fine hints of toasted almond. An imperceptible hint of chocolate on the persistence/aftertaste. Good length.
